The story behind Analisse Taft’s new Living Vintage fabric collection plays to the universal fantasy of finding something unexpected, valuable and life changing where you least expect it. For Taft that moment came when she discovered a pile of dusty vintage silk screens hidden away in the rafters of a Brooklyn printing factory. By adapting the designs and updating the colors she’s put a score of mid-century prints back in circulation, old but new. To view the collection visit ALT for Living, then click on “fabrics” and the “Living Vintage” icon.

It’s currently for sale at Cora Ginsburg.
